Medical Aid in Dying – Ethical Debates, Professional Challenges, Societal Questions

Here are just some of the questions that will be explored at “Physician-Assisted Death: Scanning the Landscape and Potential Approaches,” a public workshop organized by the Board on Health Sciences Policy of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine in February in DC. 

  • What is known about the access to and practice of physician-assisted death in the United States and in other countries? 
  • In U.S. jurisdictions where it is legal, who makes use of this provision? 
  • What are the experiences of professionals? 
  • Who is vulnerable? 
The speaker list is an all-star cast and I an delighted to play a part.
